Art Deco Emerald & Diamond Bracelet
* * SOLD * *
An elegant Art Deco era bracelet, modeled in platinum, whose primary gems are a quintet of vibrant natural emeralds. These emeralds have rich, highly-saturated color and excellent transparency— they graduate in size, outward from the center. Each is set in a milgrained bezel, where they are flanked by pairs of baguette diamonds.
This flexible bracelet is composed of hinged, gem-encrusted links. Its round diamonds are old European cuts and old single cuts. In this composition, the angular, geometric pattern of emeralds and baguette diamonds is challenged by trios of leaf-like forms that appear to "cap" the ends of the links. These leaves (or pennants) point inward, directing the eye toward the bracelet's center. The sides of the bracelet feature a delicate, engraved pattern of trefoils, that recall the leaf-like forms of its face. This bracelet closes with a hidden clasp, and is fitted with a safety catch. It is beautifully made, ornate, and its smaller scale makes it immensely wearable! Marked Menner, and with an "E" inside an oval cartouche. Probably German. Diamond CTW is approx 3.58 carats. Emerald CTW is approx 2.21 carats.
